On Saturday, April 27, the Destin Family YMCA Aquatic Center is celebrating YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day with a free community event that encourages kids in Destin to get moving and learning, and families living healthier. Healthy Kids Day, the Y’s national initiative to improve families’ health and well-being, will take place from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Destin Family YMCA on Commons Drive in an effort to kick-start healthier behaviors now and throughout the summer, a critical out-of-school time for children’s health.
“At the YMCA, we know parents struggle to keep their kids physically and intellectually active every day. We want to help ensure fewer kids are at risk of childhood obesity and more kids excel in school,” said Michael Rojas, CEO of the YMCA of Florida's Emerald Coast. “YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day will get kids moving and learning while also helping families get a jump on creating a healthier summer, and ultimately a healthier future.”
